- A Low cut, single breasted jacket works best if you have a big bust
- A jacket that fastens underneath the bust is preferably because one that buttons over the bust might appear too tight and could lead to the peek-a-boo effect (we dont't want that, lol!)
- Go for styles that are slightly longer than the hip to elongate the body. Unless it's a cropped jacket, anything that hits right on the hip tends to draw attention if you are wider at the hips.
- A narrower lapel makes you appear slimmer up top.
- Stick with tops that have deep V-necks, sweetheart and scoop necklines (layer tops underneath very low necklines)
- Wrap tops are good
- Avoid high necks like the plague!
- General Tip! If you are higher than a C-Cup try not to wear heavily padded bras especially with Shirts. A lady at T.M lewin told me this when i kept complaining about my buttons. I now wear non-padded bras with my shirts and I even went a shirt size smaller....lifesaver!)
- Go for straight cut or boot cut styles
- Dark, clean washes
- Avoid tapered skinny jeans or anything too small or tight that creates a "sausage" effect
*If you must wear skinny jeans, make sure you wear a long-lined top that covers the widest part of your thighs. Also, remember to go for a darker wash.
- Avoid cropped or boyfriend styles which will tend to make you look short and wide

I've created a few examples with fresh ways to pair colours and more traditional colours that go well together but are not matchy matchy.

Chris' attack is even more violent than i originally imagined, he tried to push her out of a moving car and had her head in an arm-lock!! I wish her family might have been able to make her get some counseling because getting back together with Chris is clearly not a good idea.

Sarah Jessica Parker has created a signature look and fragrance that is ultra-feminine and timeless. tastefully hip. This, in my opinion is the best perfume ever created by a celebrity (I'm not a big fan of celeb fragrances). The perfume has been described as one which blends a scent of pure innocence with the exotic nature of a precious oil and the sophistication of a fine perfume. That is no lie. This one is a must-have if you love all things feminine, elegant and classic. I'm sad because I've got about 2 sprays left till it's finished.
Chemistry: Top notes sparkle with Fresh Mandarin, Bergamot and Radiant Rosewood rushing into Lush Lavender and Crisp Apple Martini. Middle Notes Blossom with Exotic Patchouli, the perfume of paper whites and creamy orchid. Bottom Notes Seduce and Linger with Sensuous Cedar, White Maber, Sultry Musk and Woods.
I reckon 'Elle' is the perfect name for this fragrance as it conjures up the right images of what it really is. I adore the design of the bottle - very chic. An audacious and feminine fragrance for a cosmopolitan girl - vibrantly feminine and ultra contemporary. It fuses woody and floral notes to create a perfume for a woman with no reservations.
Chemistry: A blend of Peony, Pink Berries and Patchouli
Euphoria By Calvin Klein was launched as a Fun, Enticing (I hate that word, lol!) Scent for Women. I love it for not being too over-powering and it's a really great fragrance in a humid environment. I think this is going to be my present to myself on my birthday. Apparently, the bottle design was inspired by an orchid about to bloom.
Chemistry: The Beautiful Fragrance has top notes of Pomegranate, Persimmon, and a Lovely Lush Green Accord. The Heart then blends into a sensual Lotus Blossom and black Orchid. Bottom notes are Amber, Violet, Cream And Woods.
'Simple yet sensual, comforting yet captivating'. This one is a strong and bold woman's perfume. I imagine a powerful and sophisticated business mogul. She has a mysterious and seductive nature. I'm not too familiar with Armani's fragrances and I hear their women's perfumes are not as popular as the males (this one was created from the male version) but this is a good attempt.
Chemistry: Orange flower note with fresh ginger accents and the caress of honey-sandalwood accord.
SOME OF MY FAVOURITE PERFUME ADS
I Think this has a lot to do with the CSS track.

Christian Louboutin Alti Leather Pumps
Faith Red Patent Heels
Tory Burch Reva Patent Flats
Personally, I find boot-cut jeans the hardest to wear. They are best suited to cowboy boots or knee-high boots which is fine if you are in live where the sun don't shine (lol!). The wider leg will allow the shaft of the jeans to hang comfortably over the boots. However, these jeans are not very good for those who prefer tucking jeans into boots (skinnies are perfect for that) because the excess material will keep spilling over the boots.
My advise for fashionistas in warmer climates would be to try strappy sandals.
Georgina Goodman Suede boots
WIDE-LEGGED or FLARED JEANS
Fendi Tri-Colour Slingbacks
Via Spiga Priscilla from Piperlime
Tory Burch Cerise Canvas Wedge (Perfect for Summer!)
Thick heeled- court shoes generally look good with straight cut jeans. Depending on the length (if they are ankle swingers), flat pumps are also acceptable. I think they look a little weird with boots.
